Projecting the Glassboro Memory Mapping Project: Developing and Sharing a Community Focused Digital Scholarship Project
Mike Benson, Rowan University

How can digital archive collections be used to make learning more relevant? How can digital scholarship be leveraged to increase curiosity, emotional attachment to, and appreciation for a local community's heritage? In this presentation, we will share our experiences exploring these questions through the development and sharing of the Glassboro Memory Mapping project, a community focused digital scholarship project that incorporates experiential and blended learning. We will share our experiences developing the project and how we used projection mapping as a design and presentation solution that wraps digital content around a three-dimensional structure (community building) using projectors to introduce students and the broader community to the rich history of Glassboro, NJ.

Student-Faculty-Librarian Collaboration: Building a Digital Bestiary, and a Collaborative Course Model 
Tierney Steelberg, Chloe Wells, and Jed Edwards, Guilford College

Together, a professor of Religious Studies and a librarian worked to revamp an existing course to incorporate a focus on digital humanities. The class was fully team-taught in fall 2018, and incorporated both disciplinary and digital scholarship expertise: students learned information and digital literacy skills in "Tech Labs" throughout the semester and worked in teams on cross-cultural comparative research projects for a digital bestiary, while learning about supernatural beings from around the world and comparative religious theory. This session will focus on the collaborative model and structure of the course and its central project, and will feature students who took the course sharing their experiences with collaboration and digital humanities work.
